This is the carnage we woke up to this morning. Sometime during the night a branch fell, making a small mess and a hole in the lawn.
Although we had our big old silver maple removed this past Spring, there are still lots of big trees nearby. It's nice to live in an old neighborhood with large trees and tree-lined streets. But trees grow up and gravity pulls down. My neighbor lost a bigger branch last week. The larger trunks of it are still out by his shed. I've got a feeling he's going to ask me if I'd like it for firewood, and if so I will take it. You wouldn't believe the price of a small bundle of wood at the stores around here, that's why I save all this free wood. I just hope I'm never pulling some out of my roof.
